Different format this year because we ran out of offseason.
Previously: Quarterbacks and Running Backs
Seth: SEEVERS AND TENDS!
Owait this isn't a Penn State blog.
Anyway, this kinda looks like a down year for wideouts in the conference, though there’s a crop of rising sophomores—as Michigan fans may be aware—that could change that in a hurry.
Seth: It always looks like a down year because the breakout guys don't leave any trace of being good before they do so.
BiSB: If this was a real draft—SHUT UP, I SAID IF—you probably wouldn't see a receiver off the board in the first, what, five rounds?
Ace: I think this conversation has to start with Nebraska’s Stanley Morgan, who’s thrived despite some awful QB play. I’d take Morgan and maybe Juwan Johnson relatively high and otherwise there’s not much proven anything out there.
Alex: One recent development to consider: Ohio State’s receivers may actually be well-coached this season.
Brian: No comment.
Ace: They’re just gonna promote the GA who’s actually been coaching them the last year.
BiSB: In the land of #Zone6, the Random GA is king. And Parris Campbell is pretty dang good.
Ace: But, yeah, Parris Campbell may be able to catch footballs thrown more than five yards downfield, and that’d be scary. Jinx.
Brian: I don't think one fall camp is going to turn that situation around.
Ace: He was still pretty scary without that ability, unfortunately.
BiSB: I can see them throwing downfield more with Haskins.
Seth: Someone would take Stanley Morgan and then there'd be a long drought. Morgan is legit and has produced through some dark quarterbacking years. But I'd be sweating Quintez Cephus. We discussed the windows that Hornibrook throws at, and Cephus's target numbers are insane: 79% catch rate, had a 71% success rate, 13 YPT.
[After THE JUMP: Let's all imagine Michigan's catchies in a competent passing offense.]
